    forget about stroking, you can rebore it to 2L with a 85mm bore(~1980cc).

    actually its just more stress, you can run a stroked motor at high rpm but you will need stronger rods.

    the consept of stroking a motor is no deffrent then the v8 do... for the rpm rang it is going to vary on your set up but there are v8 car that are stroked that run all the way to 9000 to 12000 rpm.. make she the motor is balance tho that is the key to be able to rev your car at high rpm's.. :ph34r:
    but if i am wrong on some of this please tell me

    i'm a firm believer that stroking is for your cock and sleeving/larger bore is for your motor.

    You *can* rev a stroked b18c1 high, but the question is do you want to?

    Yes there is an increase in piston sideloading, so wear is an issue.

    Further, the stroke is going to alter the piston dwell time, essentially make it shorter. The result is going to shift the powerband down, so not only are you increasing wear by reving high you also are not going to be making power up high.

    So sure you can rev your stroked motor high, there just isn't much reason too.
